Inkbird ITC-1000 Dual Stage Temperature Controller

Inkbird 110V All-Purpose Digital Temperature Controller Fahrenheit & Centigrade Thermostat + 2 Relays

ITC-1000 Dual Stage Digital Temperature Controller from Inkbird.  Similar to the very popular STC-1000 temperature controller with the exception of… the ITC-1000 displays in both Fahrenheit and Celsius.

  • Temperature Calibrating, Refrigerating control output delay protection
  • Fahrenheit and Celsius Display Can Be Chosen
  • Control the Temperature by Setting the Temperature Set Value and the Difference Value
  • Alarm When Temperature Exceeds the Limit or When Sensor Error
  • 2 Relays, Switch Between Cooling and Heating Modes

Dual Stage means you can control both a heating and cooling device to dial in fermentation temperatures.  This could also be used to control kegerator temperatures.

5 Gallon Ball Lock Kegs… $44.99! + Shipping + Bonus 1980s Song Reference

Used Ball Lock Kegs

5 Gallon Ball Lock Cornelius Kegs.  Note that the description doesn’t say that they are 5 gallons, I’m inferring that from the photo.

These are described as being in good condition, not refurbished but pressure tested.

At $44.99 these are one of the best deals in used ball locks I’ve seen in quite a while.  Shipping is an additional charge…

img_shippingThe band Poison was right when they wisely stated “Every Rose Has Its Thorn”.  However, in this case it could be rightly stated that every thorn has it’s rose.  $33.23 isn’t a great shipping rate for a single keg, but… each additional keg ships gratis.  This is a great deal.

Eva Dry 500 for Kegerator Condensation + Hands on Review

Eva Dry 500 Kegerator Condensation

Like many of you, I use a chest freezer for chilling and serving kegs.  The big downside I’ve experienced is with that is… condensation.  Not just beads of water on the sides, I had pooling water in the bottom.  Not a good thing.  This varies by how often I’m in it and the weather, but the fact is, a chest freezer just isn’t designed to deal with condensation like a refrigerator is.

Enter the Eva-Dry E-500.  The Eva Dry contains a desiccant material that absorbs moisture.  As this material absorbs moisture it also changes color.  Dark blue means it’s dry and pink means it’s becoming saturated.  The great thing about the Eva-Dry is that the desiccant material is reusable.  The unit contains a built in heater that drives off built up moisture.  When it becomes saturated, plug it in overnight and it’s ready to go again the next day.  Mine usually lasts 6 to 8 weeks before needing to be regenerated.

The Eva-Dry E-500 has kept my kegerator dry for years.  Check out my extensive Hands on Review including condensation trials.

How to Fix a Keg That Leaks – 5 Things to Check

New 5 Gallon Corny Keg Ball Lock

Adventures in Homebrewing has a nice step by step write up on fixing keg leaks.  I particularly like #5 “Post O-Rings”.  I find that to be a particularly pesky leak.  I’ve lost at least one full tank of CO2 to a bad oring that cost pennies – See: Checking for Gas QD CO2 Leaks for more on that.

13″ Stainless Steel Wall Mount Drip Tray – $42.99 – Made in the USA

Deluxe Drip Tray - 13" Wall Mount

Description from MoreBeer.com: “Our deluxe drip tray with louvered splash grate. A drip tray keeps you from having to have an unsightly bucket under the faucet. Easily removed for cleaning in the dishwasher or sink. The 13″ width allows for use with four faucets.

We label them deluxe because these trays were designed by MoreBeer! and are fabricated in the USA. We use a brushed finish 304 stainless steel which is more expensive and difficult to work with – but looks beautiful. We carefully TIG weld the corners instead of sealing with a bead of silicone or using welding and then grinding which destroys the finish.” (keep reading)
